„Mothers hold their children’s hands for a short while - but their hearts forever.“

There’s no greater love than the one between a mother and her child. Mother’s day is right around the corner and is here for us to celebrate this strong connection/bond as well as to show our mothers’ gratitude and love. Here are 4 thoughtful, personal and luxurious gift ideas for Mother’s Day.

Handwritten

When is the last time you’ve written a letter? This is your occasion to get your fountain pen back in shape and write down your thoughts, wishes and memories. Your mother will appreciate this surprise more than you can imagine. A handwritten letter is probably one of the most personal gifts to express love and gratitude. And if you want to add a luxurious piece to this message of love, why not chosing a „Meisterstück“ fountain pen by Montblanc? This is an absolute classic amongst fountain pens and a very useful treasure for everyday life.

Sweet Dreams

How important a good nights sleep can be for our wellbeing, we all know just very well – at the very last since Arianna Huffington’s campaign around her book „The Sleep Revolution“. And sleeping in soft and comfortable beds is an even greater pleasure. That’s why this gift idea is one of my favorites and I am sure it will make every mother have the sweetest dreams. Matouk is the heritage brand a luxurious number one choice since 1929, when it comes to the softest bedding. The best thing about it: you can customize the bed linens with your mother’s initials. Personal, luxurious, thoughtful.

Fragrance Experience

A mother’s scent is the first thing a baby memorizes. Remembering the unique scent of a mother who smells like „home“ continues for a lifetime. Why not surprising your mother with a perfume experience that lets you create a custom scent – together. Jo Malone London offers that kind of service (at each Jo Malone Boutique), called Fragrance Combining™. It is part of the Jo Malone London philosophy. To put it simply, it revolves around fragrance layering – using more than one scent (be it a cologne, body wash or body crème) to help you to find a combination that is uniquely yours. The perfume bottles can be engraved with messages or names, upon request, and candles that match your scent can be added to complete your bespoke gift package.

Seal the Love

Cartier’s love bracelet: A classic that will never come out of style. The message behind the bracelet is a universal symbol of love and commitment. The LOVE bracelet, created in the 1970s in New York is an iconic piece of Cartier’s classic love collection. The LOVE bracelet is a flat bangle studded with screws that locks to the wrist. Opened and closed with a screwdriver. A ritual to seal love within the jewelery piece. More recent collections contain various versions of love bracelets. To customize this iconic gift, Cartier offers a service to engrave names, dates or messages within the bracelets. A truly luxurious, timeless and personalized gift idea for her.
